Teaching

Over the years, I have taught courses in philosophy of science, philosophy of language, epistemology, and critical reasoning.

In the academic year 2021-2022, I teach one graduate course in epistemology. This course is about non-universal generalizations in science. We discuss the semantic content and epistemic role of two types of non-universal generalizations. First, we discuss ceteris paribus generalizations, such as “Ceteris paribus, whenever the demand for a good increases, the price of that good will increase as well”. Second, we discuss generic generalizations in science, such as “Americans overestimate social class mobility”. Both sentences express generalizations that allow for exceptions. In this course, we ask what these sentences say exactly and how scientists do (and should) reason about them.
